Making s'mores and Reconnecting with God

This past weekend's retreat was truly refreshing! My friend and I drove out to East Texas Friday afternoon and arrived at our destination just after 8 p.m.

Me all excited about driving out to camp...


Here we are walking up to camp...



The scenery really is beautiful and serene out there...



Our cabins were very nice and had huge porches with lots of rocking chairs and benches....



Taking pictures of myself inside our cabin...we both took top bunks (regretted it later...ugh!)



That night, after orientation and getting all settled into our cabins....We headed to the campfire pit and made some s'mores!







The next morning, we had a yummy breakfast and had our first worship session. Really great message that hit home! After that, we had lunch, then started out our fun day full of activities!

The camp has a really amazing and HUGE waterpark during the summertime. Unfortunately, because of the colder temperatures, it was closed down...we hope that they hold an "adult retreat" next summer so we can have some waterpark fun, too!



(I'm always snapping random pictures of myself....)


This is the zip line tower that we jumped off of!



Here we are all "harnessed" into our gear and ready to ZIP!



WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!



That afternoon, we went horseback riding....My horse's name was Titan!




That evening, we had a wonderful dinner and began worship session 2...



The first thing we did was play "Battle of the Sexes"!!!






The worship session that night was sooooo fantastic and had me completely convicted and refreshed. I sometimes have to clear the cobwebs in my mind to remember how important my relationship with God really is...and this past weekend really reignited that flame!

That night, we once again headed down to the campfire to make s'mores (you can't go camping without making s'more EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT!)







What an amazing way to spend my weekend....good friends, good times and remembering my passion for the Lord!

That retreat looks both fun and relaxing. I guess both qualities you look for in a retreat.
